Over the last 8 weeks (OR MORE) my car has had this swishy wind up sound when ever I start it, which stops once I give the car some gas. On weds while going down the highway I mis-shifted into 3rd from 5th gear, moments later I began to have this screeching sound everytime i hit the throttle. Later, down the highway I heard a big BOOM, 5th and 4th gear were no longer useable, and the car had this metallic swishing grinding sound as the car rolled, this sound occurs with or w/o throttle pressure. Does this sound like a blown tranny

How much should I expect to spend on having a used (or used certified rebuilt tranny) installed into my car. Should I go ahead an install a new clutch while everything is off?

The jerks at aamco will not allow me to source a used tranny for my car, instead they would like to charge me 59.95 for a diagnostic exam, $400 in labor to remove and installl ny tranny, and they refuse to tell me how much a tranny from one of their distributors will cost.

Who does quality economic transmission work on the south side of Atlanta?

Thanks for reading, please reply.

you can expect to pay upwards of a thousand dollars for a new tranny. my friend did endless neutral drops in his 90 civic and blew it, it cost him 900 and change. i guess you can use this info as a refernce

What is a neutral drop? Is it pulling the car out of gear into neutral before you stop, I do that everyday.

remember this guy has a manual tranny which are less expensive that autos. But yeah, still do expect to pay an arm and a leg for a tranny. Too bad you cant get your own cuz there is a used one on ebay for around $200 if I remember. A rebuild on the auto in my 97 was estimated in upwards of 2 grand so I got a tranny from a dealeship for $1500. A manual is cheaper but not a whole lot. I'd guestimate anywhere from $500-$1500. Heck you can get low mileage JDM tranny for less than $500.

I've found a shop that is willing to install a replacement tranny for $275. I might look into a jdm tranny, or any other cheaper options.

can probebly find aused one at a pick and pull yard for roughly 200-400 depending on how cool the guy is. and then even with 0 knoledge a few friends and a manual u can do it all yourself and install a new clutch while yer at it of course. o yea and make sure to put fluid in your "new" tranny cus.... sounds like u didnt have any in the last. another thing is consider finding a parts car reall smashed up for realllly cheap and snag the tranny or any other goodies u want then have a junk yard haul the rest away

I've found a rebuilt tranny with a 12 month warranty. At one point, I was lookin at buying another car, a honda hatch. I'm not sure if i want to throw money into this car, because I'm bein' giving a 96 max in july. I would like a car to fix up, autocross, and tear up the back roads. i lack passion for the b13, but I find it cheaper to fix and mod what I already have.

With the prices I'm seeing you list it's obvious you are searcing in the wrong places. Not to mention that putting in a tranny ain't overly difficult. Every car has it's problems. Getting another car doesn't mean your car problems are over. I won't comment any further.

Im hoping to get rid of this car, so lil aftermarket support, lack of stylin' on the 4dr model, but mysearch for a replacement hasn't been easy. I wish i wouldnt hae locked my money into I-bonds, then i would have a budget that would increase my search. I might have to keep this ugly pos :(
